Join this exclusive panel event at one of Manchester’s most iconic music venues.

This edition of the Scale Up Sessions considers the post-pandemic re-emergence of the live and on-demand music industry, thrown into turmoil during lockdown, but finding new ways of building creative businesses in what is always a dynamic commercial enterprise environment.

Join us as we’ll be considering how we’re overcoming the difficulties of the post-pandemic return to live performance and the changing climate for musicians, as well as the threats and opportunities presented by the ever-advancing digital world, including artificial intelligence techniques in sound recording, performance in virtual spaces, personalised fan products and direct creator-to-fan relationships.

Chaired by John Robb, journalist, musician, and host of Louder Than Words music literature festival.

Gavin Sharp, CEO of Band on the Wall.

Terry Tyldesley, musician and music tech consultant.

Simon Scott, co-founder of CIRKAY & Push Entertainment social commerce technology companies.

Fiona McGarva, Sundae Communications and Lost Horizon, a VR and live creative events company.

Curated for BIPC Greater Manchester by Malcolm Garrett and Kasper de Graaf for Design Manchester.
